The monotypic genus Samlandotoma Alekseev, 2019 from Eocene Baltic amber is transferred from Ripiphoridae: Pelecotominae to Tenebrionoidea, family incertae sedis, based on a comprehensive review of the original description and its comparison with fossil and extant genera of Pelecotominae and other ripiphorid genera.
